Mental Models

Mental models describe our idea of ​​how something works.
They help us to reduce the complexity of the world.

For Example A Menu:

It gives you a selection of the foods available without showing you the foods
themselves. A good menu is when it gives you an accurate picture of the actual food.

And our mental models work exactly according to the principle: The more precise they
are, the better decisions we can make.

Here you can find a list of my best mental models, my personal game-changers:

Situation is stronger than willpower

#Psychology #Self-Empowerment

If you have a specific goal and are serious about it, then the most important question is: In what kind of situation would the goal be easiest to achieve? Read More

Example:

You want to quit smoking. So you make a firm resolve to quit from now on. But in the evening you go to a party, see everyone smoking with relish, at some point you can’t resist and smoke.
Situation 1 – Willpower 0.

Alternative:

You want to quit smoking and understand how much influence the situation has on the success of your project. You are invited to a party in the evening and know that there is smoking, but you are currently prone to regression. So you forego this party completely. You don’t even get involved in the fight because you understand that the fight will be decided when the party is accepted or canceled. You say no and you are not tempted at all and you do not smoke either.
Situation 1 – Willpower 0.

Conclusion:

Use your willpower to choose the situations as best you can. And not to fight against an unfavorable situation. Read Less
